I want to wear something like this everyday.
Our most salient memories are those connected to our most powerful emotions. Among these include the sense of the mystical. Our spiritualities are built on memories of sensory data paired with the feeling of awe and wonder. Search for these senses that awaken those memories - the smell of burning sage, a quiet pond, a roaring thunderstorm. Place reminders of these things in your life as a constant presence of the mystical, from your living rooms to your office spaces, and you will deepen your spiritual practices by altering your emotional state. This is what ritual does. This is witchcraft in its most natural sense.
It’s that sudden sense of cool electric energy, flowing through you on a Fall day. The chill that accompanies the depth of warmth from a hot cup of tea, velvet sweaters, and thick scarves. That smell of wet leaves and of spicy cinnamon. These are the moments I wait for.
Can’t handle it! I’m SO ready for Autumn!
The Craft is like any other craft, in that you must practice - offer a sacrifice of your time. After many hours it becomes automatic, like the muscle memory of playing an instrument. In the beginning, you’re just learning the notes, eventually you’ll write symphonies.
